morning - 7 ND. Nice run with Twix up into the desert. Could feel the sickness and lack of running, but it was nice to be out running. Abs. (Peg green 236.25)

noon - 12 Highland. Twix and I went up to the Highland Trail. On the way out, we came across a dog off leash. I though it was with someone one, but it was lost and kept running from us. Almost home, Py was headed out, so I joined her. We first checked out the dead horse someone dumped at the Dirt Mile - it is gross and starting to stink; why would anyone dump a dead horse there?  I told her about the lost dog, and she wanted to go look for it. We found it and tried to catch it to help it get home. But it ran away, under the tunnels and into the North Desert. We hunted for it for a long time, but no luck. Hopefully it finds some help and doesn’t die out there. Multiple ab sessions today. (Peg oly 452.5)

AM - 4 Twix.  Back to the grind.  Waking up to an alarm today was not pleasant.  I am thankful, however, that today is a teacher work day.  Run was a little better than the last two.  Abs after.  (Boston 270.25)

AM - abs and a 20 min walk with the dogs. It was tough to wake up this morning, and I opted to sleep a little longer and walk. 

afternoon - 9.5 Track/mall. Back to school today and then practice. Did our inaugural Death Run. It was fun, but tough. Being sick again made me a bit more tired than usual, and we went out harder than I thought we would. All part of the experience. I went from almost being out on the first lap to taking 4th 25 mins of pretty solid tempo effort later. Then we finished our time running out by the mall. The Essence was there and it was great running and talking with him. (Peg blue 577.75)

AM - walk and abs.  Another good walk with the dogs.  Left hammy has decided to flair up.  I guess the quicker pace yesterday did it.  

afternoon - 5.5 DIx2.  Just warmed and cooled with the team.  Hammy isn't really feeling good.  (Peg black33 485.5)

afternoon - Went on a hike with my girls (minus Pyper who was at honor band) and dogs.  We went up in the desert to Elephant Arch.  I have never been there before (at least all the way up to the arch).  It was very pretty and we had a lot of fun.  The girls loved playing in the sand dunes of the wash; it reminded me of doing the same thing as a kid.  Hammy isn't feeling any better which is why I decided against running today.

AM - 3.25 Twix.  Abs and back to the running with Twix.  Hammy felt pretty decent - no pain, no twinge; but we kept it pretty short.  Long run this afternoon.  Hopefully it will hold up well.  Mornings are so warm, really is not a good thing.  But we did get a little bit of rain Saturday and a dusting of snow on the mountain.  (Peg blue 581)

afternoon - 12.25 Turkey Farm.  Good long run.  First half we really worked on keeping guys together with the group.  They did a solid job until their turn.  Then a few of us finished up higher (basically right at the Turkey Farm road).  We had some pickups along the way.  Pace was good, but nothing crazy.  Temps were nice with a bit of a drizzle throughout.  Hammy held up well.  (Peg green 248.5)

AM - 4 Twix.  Rainy run this morning with Twix.  A little tightness with a little extra in the hammies, but felt good to get going.  Abs as well.  (Peg Oly 456.5)

afternoon - 5.75 Dino Tracks.  Nice desert trail run with a little drizzling rain.  Running in the desert after storms is the best.  Felt pretty good.  Just held toward the back of the single file and enjoyed.  (Speedgoat 46.25)

AM - 4 Twix.  Abs and then a bit with the dog.  Could feel being a little worn down, but want to keep doubling for now because who knows what the end of the week will be.  A hazy drizzle still hanging around.  We really need the rain and snow in the mountains, so its good.  Plus it keeps the temps way warmer.  (Cumulus 387.75)

afternoon - 5.25 Boulder. Vis and I hit a few miles around CU campus before our conference. Very pretty campus. Cool old buildings; saw Folsom Field; and the creek and trail along it were awesome. (Peg Green 253.75)

AM - 4 Boulder. Headed the other direction down Boulder Creek before the conference. Ended up a very good experience (the conference). A lot of good ideas for addressing some of our program’s weaknesses. Got about 45 mins of personal time with Doug Soles of Great Oak as he joined Vis and I for lunch. (Peg Green 557.75)

morning - 13.5 Twix/Suicidal.  Started with a short run with the dog.  Then over to Suicidal Tendencies for a good trail run.  Was able to complete the whole trail (which I haven't for the last couple times out there because of injury).  Good times with desert trail runs.  (Peg grey 556.5)

AM - 4 Twix. Slogged through.  Then weights and abs.  Hammy (mostly left) has been tender, so weights kinda set that off.  Abs after.  (Peg blue 589)

afternoon - 7 Sullivan Loop via DogTown.  Enjoying running with the team.  Nice to see a few kids pushing to quicker groups.  (Boston 292.75)

AM - 4 Twix. Abs then run.  A bit sluggish.  (Cumulus 395.75)

afternoon - 7 track.  Just ran around with a few of the different groups during their workout.  Got to run with some kids that I don't normally run with and that was cool.  (Peg Oly 470.5)

AM - 4 Twix.  Felt a little better with the run this morning as far cadence.  Have been struggling with it a bit the last couple weeks, but today was 168 (want to get back to that consistent 170).  Weights and then abs.  Was very sore from weights Tuesday.  (Peg Black33 489.5)

afternoon- 6.75 Albino’ish. Pretty slow and kinda whatever run. But the company was good. Awesome to have Carter with us the whole run!  (Peg green 274.5)

AM - 4 Twix. Abs and then run with Twix. (Peg blue 589)

afternoon - 8.5 PVMS. After a rather strange and frustrating encounter with a woman who thought she didn’t need to put her dog on a leash, we did 8x3:00 tempo pace intervals with 30 sec rec. Good workout. Kept the pace at 5:45-:50. Was a bit tired at the end. (Boston 294.25)

noon - 9.5 Prospector. Went and got muddy with Twix. Has been raining pretty consistent since late last night. (Speedgoat 55.75)

Was able to do pretty much what I needed/wanted throughout the week and felt pretty good. 

Goals for next week: I don’t really have any sort of direction with my running... just enjoy it.

AM - 4 Twix.  Abs and then running with the dog.  Coolest morning this winter, I think.  (Pace 414.5)

afternoon - 14.25 Pioneer Parkway.  Long run with many of the boys.  Group dispersed as time went on, but many did well.  Many girls did well, too.  But got back to find out that many on the team are struggling with their committment as well, and that is very disappointing.  Our run: solid pace throughout especially on the way back.  Decent pick-ups.  Made it nearly to the baseball fields out in Snow Canyon area.  Good discussions about racism as well as suicide.  (Peg black33 503.75)

AM - 3 Twix.  Abs and run.  Another cool morning.  A bit sore in the legs, but mostly sore in the achilles (right especially).  Weights after.  (Pace blue 203.5)

afternoon - 6.25 Mustang.  Really felt my stomach on the 2nd half of the run; fell way back and then caught up by the end.  They are destroying the desert up above Green Springs.  Truthfully it will be gone in a few years.  And the city and developers all think it is great as they get fat with cash.

AM - 4 Twix.  Out with the dog after abs.  Stomach is turning a lot.

afternoon - 7.5 track.  Jumped into the Pace workout with a variety of different groups.  I am glad I am able to run with some of the kids I don't normally get to on these workouts.  (Adios 484.5)

AM - 4 Twix.  Abs and run with the dog.  Then weights.  

afternoon - 8 Foremaster.  Ran around a bit searching for a good route for our Hill Circuit.  Then took it up Foremaster in reverse.  Didn't feel good throughout the run.  You'd think I'd get feeling better eventually.  (Peg blue 597)

AM - 4 Twix.  Abs and run with the dog.  Felt the last few days off; stomach felt a little better.

afternoon - 12 Turkey Farm.  Decent run, but I didn't want to do it.  Had some tempo paced sections during it and those were all good.  (Peg green 276.5)

AM - 4 Twix.  Up with the dog and the Super Blue Blood Moon.  It was pretty cool.  I like stuff like that.  But the sunrise after was even better.  Abs before.  Stomach is improving, but not all settled yet.  (Peg oly 467.5)

afternoon - 7.75 GS. Decent run with some quiz questions throughout. Still struggling to get all the kids together, but those that want to are pushing themselves. (Boston 302)
